We have a big Steelhead crane on the boat deck to manage our tender deployment. I think it is rated for 1,600 lbs. The tender should come in around 800 lbs.
This crane has a fantastic wireless remote. Should make this process about as easy as it can be. As you can see we can load/unload the tender from the swimstep, as well as from the starboard side.
